Becouse tomorrow, I'm doing my re-examination for maths, in wich I really suck. I studied a lot and I can do all exercices, but I keep making mistakes. I'll need all the time they give me, and im gonna need a lot of luck. I really really really dont want to fail becouse then im out of my fantastic class and into a stupid one. just felt like sharing this. Burn a candle for me tomorrow at 8.30 am :) (brussels time zone dont know the exact name)

Aah, the horrors of maths.
Looks like you worked hard, so you should pass.
Good luck, I remember I was nervous like hell too for my maths exam in June.

I liked math for most of my time in school. What level of math are you studying?
Best tip is probably to make sure you get a good night's sleep tonight, plus a good breakfast.
Best of luck and relax.

Always hated math only a bit less than our swedish classes. Lucky me that it is behind now. :)
I'll start burning the candle from both ends. :p

Thanks for the support guys!
@bigstick: I'm in the fifth grade right now, but our system is different from yours. It means the grade before the last :)
I don't know about that sleeping part, ill probably continue making exercices till i drop, hehe.
anyway, off to study some more, thanks again!!

Hmm, yes our systems are quite different. I took math classes in high shool named: Algebra, Geometry, Algebra II/Trigonometry, Analytic Geometry (I think), and Calculus. I'm sure there was something else in there, but can't remember what it was (was 20 years ago after all).
Getting a good night's sleep will help you concentrate tomorrow and make it easier to recall the information floating around in your head. As a study aid, I used to create a "cheat sheet" with all of the information that I would need in the test. I'd write it all down on paper, and then rewrite it until I got it as small as possible on a scrap of paper. By the time I finished with that, I knew the material so well that there was no point in actually bringing the "cheat sheet" with me. :D

And remember to take some bubble-gum with you; helps to 'concentrate' or at least break it from others with a loud "pop." :D

Dood luck! Hope you pass!

Ancal... you were reading it upside down... you really got 2.84% :p
Don't panic. I'm certain others made the same mistake.
(On a side note: Congratulations :p )
